King Charles III boasts a bloodied family tree thanks to an infamous distant relative.

The newly appointed monarch is a descendant of Vlad the Impaler, the 15th century ruler of the Romanian region of Wallachia, famous for his namesake torture method.

Vlad was known to kill his enemies by impaling them on wooden stakes, initiating an excruciating death that could sometimes take up to three days. His brutal actions made him the assumed inspiration for Bram Stoker’s “Dracula.”

According to Romania Tour Store, Charles, 73, is the great-grandson 16 times removed of Vlad, through the consort of George V, Queen Mary.

In fact, the new British king has a longtime love for Romania, especially Transylvania, which he first visited in 1998.

Since then, he bought and restored an 18th century cottage in the village of Viscri.

He’s also done charity work in the region through the Prince of Wales Foundation, including farming systems, sustainable development and conservation endeavors.

In 2017, the mayor of the city of Alba Iulia claimed they invited Charles to accept the honorary title of Prince of Transylvania for his love and commitment to the region.

But Charles now has his “sausage fingers” full with royal duties as he and his famous family continue to mourn the death of Elizabeth, who died on Sept. 8.
